For super-tender meat, marinate baby back ribs in beer and bake in the oven for three hours before grilling. These ribs grill for just 10-15 minutes, since they will have been almost cooked through in the oven.
Preheat oven to 350°. Spread onion slices evenly on a rimmed baking sheet, and place ribs, bone side down, on top. Pour beer over ribs, sprinkle with sea salt and pepper, and cover tightly with foil. Bake 3 hours or until tender.
Brush both sides of ribs with Chipotle Maple Barbecue Sauce. Grill over medium heat, meat side down, 10 to 15 minutes or until slightly charred and crispy, basting several times with sauce. Flip ribs over, and baste cooked side liberally. Close grill lid, and cook 10 to 15 minutes more, basting often. Remove from heat; let rest 10 minutes. Cut individual ribs apart, and serve warm.
Note: You can bake the ribs (step 1) up to a day ahead, but you'll need to leave them on the grill a few minutes longer to make sure they're heated through.

Like your last review "OMG". By far a 5 star recipe. This was the most tender i have ever been able to do any meat. Our Easter dinner was a great hit thanks to you outstanding "fall off the bone babyback rib recipe. Thankyou for sharing it .
I never made ribs before until I saw this recipe. I made them and accidentally burned them a little and everyone still raved about them. Cooked them 3 more times the correct way and literally the best we ever had. I feel like a rib pro and am confident they are better than anyone I know cooks lol. We used Dos Equis. Yummmmmy. Also we do 2-2.5 hours instead of 3. Cooking them for the fifth time as I write this.
This is the third time I've made these. It is now the "go to" rib recipe for us. 2 hours in oven is enough for fall of the bone ribs. Let ribs rest for at least an hour before trying to handle or transfer. Absolutely delicious, tender, fairly simple, and no need to baste on a grill for hours. Made per recipe, and put in fridge until next day, then on the grill for just a short time. Perfect. Use any of your favorite BBQ sauces, and you have a winner. I purée the cooked onions into the BBQ sauce, delightful.
These turned out really well. I cooked a little over 2 hours in oven per other reviews then let rest a little bit before grilling. I added maple syrup and chipotle pepper to bottled sauce. The spicy sweet sauce would also be good on chicken. Grilled on a gas grill with three burners - left one in the middle off. Next time I will turn on all three burners because the parts that "blackened" slightly were really good and gave the ribs a nice texture.
